    Ambient display is great and useful but wouldn't it be useful if u just look at your phone and it shows time and notification instead of picking it up

    There was an option for Always on display in the orignal firmware that the OnePlus 6 came with. And I had it enabled, but then it was updated to OOS 5.1.5 and this option disappeared.

    Always on Display eats pretty decent amount of battery. In other phones it tops 1%/hour easily and in some situations even more.

    Ambient display is in that sense way more power efficient feature and imho works pretty well.

    If they implement Always On Display it will eat up more battery and then more people will complain about the battery life. As if there aren't enough already...

    ambient display can never be more effective than always on display. If you use a phone with an AOD then you will get to know how useful of a feature it is.

    i'm not that kind of person who stares at their phone 24/7. besides it'll eat up more battery periodically.

    No AOD user stares at their phone 24/7. It is very useful as we dont have to pick up or do anything to the phone to view any notifications or anything else. Besides that AOD doesn't use that much battery. But yeah preference always differ for everybody but atleast an option would have been appreciable. And for your info specifically AOD on my S9+ uses 180 mAh in a full day and in OP terms that would be 5%of the total b3 capacity. And as OP optimises battery better than Samsung it would be even less of a consumption.

    That's like 2 minutes of dash charging lol, they should give us the OPTION of AOD OR Ambient like in the original software. If it had AOD only and didn't have ambient fanboys would claim ambient is useless and AOD is perfect, same as how they claim wireless charging is useless. Yeah having only dash charging is better than regular cable charging + wireless charging capabilities but dash charge + Qi enabled would be best, it is just an extra option not something mandatory to use

    Yep . Personally Oneplus cannot be called the Flagship killer anymore. They are using the 6 month upgrade cycle as an excuse to give us only a mediocre update on the next generation. I would have been more than happy if they would have implemented stereo speakers which is now the Flagship norm. They might give it in 6T as a merit point to T owners as their phones would be supported(in terms of OS upgrades) for 6 months less than the Op6 owners but then the cost of 6T would be 550$ or 37000₹ which would be the perfect upgrade for OP5 or 5T users and the Op6 users(lol)

    I had it on my note 8. I don't miss it. It seems better the way that it's showing notifications when it arrives on the lock screen.

    Screen is better at Note 8 especially in maximum light. But not so much better that it makes you keep it only for that. The other features like fast updates, clean software, super fast charging, face unlock and fingerprint scanner, fluidity makes a better user experience with OP6 than with the Note 8.
